The Department of Diplomacy (hereinafter referred to as 'Diplomacy') is formed by Article VI of the Constitution of FEDERATION COMMAND with the purpose of establishing and fostering good relationships with FEDERATION COMMAND and foreign Fleets whom are deemed worthy of contact and to maintain those contacts therein after. This Charter is designed to outline the role and structure of Diplomacy policies and procedures as lawfully promulgated.

II. COMMAND

VI. APPROVAL OF ALLIANCES, MERGERS, AND CERTAIN PACTS

VII. NEUTRALITY

The choices made by Diplomacy in signing treaties are to be made with the best interests of FEDERATION COMMAND in mind. They are not to be based on personal feelings or affection for others.
